Diabetes affects lung function

0

Researchers from the Netherlands have found that diabetes may cause impaired lung function, similar to that found in smokers.

The study, published in Chest, showed that diabetes causes a significant impairment in lung function. Further analysis also suggested that this impairment is more common in type-2 diabetes rather than type-1 diabetes.
The researchers speculate that diabetes may speed up lung function decline in those with chronic lung conditions, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
